Kaboef, everybody knows that I think higher of no other bike than AT and TA. But damn man, to open us up by putting facts right into their faces, is just plain suicidal and wreklace (hope the spelling is good).

Zonkel, no offence man but that is a brilliant word and should be included in the 2008 Oxford Dictionary.   8)

Got 20009 km since March 06. All sorts of riding. Did 4000 km in 7 days December. Loved every minute.
Be careful of the words you say.
And keep them soft and sweet.

Got the AT (as a second bike) in Aug 2003 and have done 46166 on it since then, but only 9216 during the 12 months (could not ride as much as I wanted to).  Have done 44340 and 14554 for the same periods respectively on the other bike.

On the AT all expenses except the fuel pump and normal service items were self-induced.  If only I had known about the Facet pump earlier...  :(
